Creating and teaching are at the core of just about everything that I do. I find inspiration everywhere and enjoy the camaraderie and community that is built when people of like minds and spirits gather together

As an artist, I am constantly trying new media and finding new directions for exploration. I currently specialize in metal clay, fused glass, alcohol ink painting and silk dyeing. 

As a teacher, I thrive on awakening the creative spark within people of all ages and backgrounds. From in depth workshops to creative nights out with wine and cheese, I provide a variety of opportunities for creative exploration.

I am founder and director of the Metalclay Artisan Guild in CT, and creator and organizer of the Metal Clay Mojo Conference

My work has been featured in publications including The Crafts Report (now known as Handmade Business), Art Jewelry Magazine, and Easy Metal Clay.

I am so blessed to be surrounded by the people I love, doing the things I love, and sharing that love with others.

As a Spiritual Being, I believe we are all here to make a positive impact on the planet and human consciousness. I strive daily to be that positive influence and to empower others to do the same. 



I met the actor Joe Pantoliano at a Retreat. He purchased two of my pieces for Himself! A very nice man, he has excellent taste!!!

Making a mess and having fun dyeing one of a kind silk scarves.

Scarf dyeing and many of my other classes are suitable for all ages. This proud dad is helping his daughter get a scarf ready for dyeing.
